in new york city, home of the united nations, world leaders from 193 countries are gathering for the annual meeting of the general assembly. president ahmadinejad will address the meeting wednesday. he had blistering words for israel today. you have been condemned very vociferously in america for a comment that you are said to have made that you wanted israel to be wiped off the map. wiped off the face of the earth. in there have been many different interpretations of what you have said. you have disputed the meaning then translated from the original. let me give you this opportunity to say exactly what you did say and say exactly what you did mean. >> translator: we have been condemning the united states for many things. for having deposed a dictator with the revolution, for having sought freedom in free elections, for not allowing our oil and natural treasure to leave our country freely, and for having stood up to very dangerous terrorists in the region, for having stood up against suddam hussein who enjoyed the backing of many. we stood up against him and did not allow the
unconstitutional measure, edict, that's being issued by the president of the united states. we need to send a clear message to the federal government that we're not going to continue what we enforce what we believe to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence. >> that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. fundamental rights that were denied to college stunts dents virginia tech and elementary school students in newtown and kids on street corners in chicago. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> we're all responsible for protec
is giving, but essentially what is it that the united states is doing about that? >> well, they and the british government have said sort of diplomatic rapid reaction forces to algeria, essentially to support the hostages that have been released, people that are trained in trauma and counseling and you can expedite things like passports that may be lost in the firefight and the chaos that ensued. but they haven't really been given access directly to the sites. this british plane anyway has gone to an airfield, that's about 250 kilometers north of the gas field. so they're being kept a long way back and there is clear frustration both here in london and in washington with the communication or lack of communication by the algerians. >> we don't know how many americans have been evacuated. do we have a sense of why there's been no information? >> largely because there's -- the al jeer yiians don't have a firm grip on what's going on. they're not passing on in a timely matter. the algerians went in yesterday without informing the brits or the americans and that caused i think

. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists said. >> all say it again. the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> we do not negotiate with terrorists. we are obviously in consultations. lou: the problem with that statement is that this government has negotiated with terrorists. our government has been engaged in talks with the taliban and afghanistan since early 2009. the same group that has been a safe haven in the immediate aftermath of september 11th. documents found in the abbottabad compound the lion was killed proving a close working relationship between the two. the same group that is also responsible for a large portion of the 2200 american soldiers killed in afghanistan since 2001. not to mention the palestinian liberation organization the designation changed after we helped negotiate the deal. meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton chose her words carefully, while suggesting that the algerian government could use a hand in the battle in that region. >> it is absolutely essential that we broaden and deepen our counter-terrorism cooperation going f

at the united kingdom they do not get caught up in this kind of wrangling. they are better governed nations right now. >> that's easy to say, i guess, when your comparison seems to be what is a completely dysfunctional congress at this point. jim, how do you go about trying to gauge how to even play this? you look at what happened over the end of the year, the fiscal cliff. and at the end of the day you might take away, well, they did get something done and the markets reacted positively. look at the rally in the first week of the year. do you approach it the same way? it seems to be to a certain extent we're not ignoring it, but at least saying i'm not going to -- >> i don't want to own domestic companies as much as i want to own foreign companies. s.a.p. not included. i think some of that's america's shakeup there. i think there are a lot of companies doing well. if you look to ppg's conference call yesterday, they're seeing a turn in asia. they're seeing europe getting better. so i want to be more oriented toward ppg and a little less toward target. >> ending a partnership with radio sha
and has people scratching their heads. the united states of america, while everybody's patting themselves on the back, we just added 4 trillion more dollars to the national debt. >> on every one of your substantive points, you're right. this is a bad bill that made a bad situation worse. the only thing that's reassuring to the rest of the world was simply that it avoided going over the cliff. so all the substance, all the details are bad. you've got to ultimately deal with entitlements. this did nothing. you've got to deal with economic growth. this did nothing. the only thing it did was avoided sending the signal that we really are reckless and out of control. >> we are reckless. we are out of control. and mark halperin, this is what's so stunning to me. is you look at the things we have to take care of over the next 20 years. and we have to take care of it now, or else seniors suffer really disproportionately over the next decade. social security. medicare, medicaid, entitlements. nothing touched there. no, it was going to be touched. the president even said, he told david gregory, yeah

on constitutional grounds based on the 14th amendment to the constitution which says that the debt of the united states shall be respected. so their argument would be in that case that it is simply unconstitutional to have a debt ceiling at all. and they say that congress -- the president rather would be able to do that without invoking congress or meeting congress in any way. >> section 4, 14th amendment, validity of the public debt of the united states shall not be questioned. that's the exact wording. doesn't say increased. it says it cannot be questioned. but then law, constitutional law scholars are saying to everybody, it is constitutional to have the congress make the debt changes. they are allowed to do that. the 14th amendment has nothing to do with that. in fact most of the 14th amendment, due process, equal protection and citizenship clause is about giving african-americans the right to vote, live and prosper in the united states. >> right. that's right. and clearly if the president was to do what they call the constitutional option that the democrats are raising here as a possibility
